Jonathan Hilton battled with a short stack against Dominik Hilton for well over an hour, but alas for Hilton, Nitsche was finally able to win an all-in and take the last of his chips.

In the last hand, Nitsche open-pushed all in with {K-Spades}{5-Spades}, and Hilton called quickly for about 1.4 million worth with {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Hilton was still best through the {3-Hearts}{J-Spades}{Q-Clubs} flop and {10-Clubs} turn. Then came the river... the {9-Diamonds}! Both players made straights, but Nitsche's was best.

Nitsche recognized he'd won a moment before his large rail of supporters did, shouting first, then was soon followed by a chorus of cheers and hugs from the crowd. Soon Nitsche was congratulating Hilton for a well-played tourney, and Hilton was congratulated in turn by those here supporting him.
